The new seats at the Beira-Rio Stadium in Porto Alegre (capital of the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil’s south region) have started to be assembled. During the weekend, 500 seats were put up in the lower ring. They expect 1,100 seats to be put up every day. In order to celebrate the moment, the word “Inter”, as Internacional Sport Clus is referred to, was printed on the seats.
The seats are made of high impact polypropylene and polyamide, and are reinforced with fibre glass using a gas injection process, which results in an extremely resistant structure. The seats will be lowered automatically, with an integrated spring to ensure perfect alignment. The colour of the new seats makes a reference to the red used in the club's main jersey.
The pitch has also been outlined. The new Beira-Rio will sit 51,300 people during the 2014 World Cup, when it will be the stage of five matches.
